Engineering a Design System

Engineering a Design System

While plenty is said about design system theory, organizational adoption, and visual design, you won’t get very far without solid engineering practices, sound architecture, and the right technologies.

We’ll take a tour through the engineering of TELUS digital’s React-based design system developed over the past year, examining technologies such as CSS Modules; testing practices; architectural decision points; and strategies for scaling to dozens of teams and hundreds of users.

Whether you are at a small or large scale, just starting or far along with a design system, you can immediately apply the lessons and technologies from this talk to your own work.
